San Jose, CA – Raging Waters San Jose announced they will expand their attraction lineup this summer with the addition of Bombs Away, a one-of-a-kind, adrenaline pumping, freefall slide.
Designed by ProSlide of Ottawa, Canada the new water ride features a unique, thrilling trap-door launch into a near vertical enclosed flume.
Bombs Away will offer Raging Waters guests an adrenaline filled experience that begins when the rider steps into an enclosed, launch capsule in a standing position. When the trap door suddenly opens, the rider plummets into the flume, descending five stores, at a top speed of 38-feet per second. The 32-inch enclosed flume will span more than 200-feet and feature several translucent sections so spectators can see the action.
Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½As Northern CaliforniaÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s largest water park, situated in the heart of Silicon Valley, we are excited about entertaining families with the latest water park technology,Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ said Valerie Contreras, general manager of Raging Waters San Jose. Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½This incredible ride uses powerful G-forces that glue riders to the wall of a 360 degree looping body slide. There is literally nothing like it.Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½
Bombs Away is planned to debut in May. Raging Waters San Jose opens for the 2011 season on Sunday, May 15.
